Wasim Jaffer Labels Hardik Pandya As His No.1 Captaincy Choice After Rohit Sharma In White-ball Cricket

Wasim Jaffer has said that the star all-rounder Hardik Pandya is his No.1 captaincy choice in the white-ball cricket after current skipper Rohit Sharma.

Hardik Pandya led Gujarat Titans (GT) to the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 triumph in his debut season as a skipper

After Hardik’s success in the Indian Premier League, he was named as Rishabh Pant-led India’s vice-captain for the home T20I series against South Africa in the absence of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul.

the BCCI named India’s squad for the upcoming two-match T20I series against Ireland and Hardik has been named as skipper in the absence of Pant, Rohit and Rahul.

 Jaffer has said that the BCCI selection committee should look seriously at Hardik for the captaincy role in white-ball cricket.

“He deserves it. Going forward, Indian selectors should look at him seriously for leading in white-ball cricket.

Especially if Rohit Sharma is not available, Hardik Pandya should be the first choice in my opinion,” said Jaffer on ESPNCricinfo
